Cohort Year: 2022-23
Sarah earned her B.S. in Pharmaceutical Sciences from Campbell University in 2017 and her Ph.D. in Pharmaceutical Sciences from Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center in 2022. Her dissertation researched the potential of dental pulp-derived stem cells, a source of adult stem cells, as a therapy for the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease. Sarah spent her time in graduate school, when not in the lab, serving on the Graduate Student Association committee and volunteering for Big Brothers Big Sisters. This time taught her that she valued community, learning about science, and talking about science. Her passion for science communication led her to the MOST fellowship, and she is excited to work with legislators and scientists to bring the best information forward for the people of Missouri.
